10th Fundamental Mechanical Pulp Research Seminar

Jan 9, 2017
AFRC in cooperation with KCL and University of Jyväskylä will organize the 10th Fundamental Mechanical Pulp Research Seminar (FMPRS) on June 13-14 2017 in Jyväskylä Finland.


The first FMPRS seminar was arranged in Espoo 1996 on the initiative of late Jan Sundholm at KCL. The event was highly successful.

The FMPRS seminar provides a forum to present and discuss the latest achievements and experiences in the field of treatments of lignocellulosic materials in an informal atmosphere among researchers and industrial fellows around the world.

The Call for Papers has been released and you can send your proposals by filling out an online form.

Topics for the presentations and posters are:

  • raw materials and pretreatments
  • fiber modification
  • production of nano and micro particles from lignocellulosic materials
  • new pulping methods and analyzers
  • bleaching of pulp
  • pulps for paper and board production
  • energy systems in mechanical pulping
  • effluent treatment and water management
  • mill conversions and site co-location
